An indisputably beautiful video and track by Elori Saxl, “Wave III” is the first single from Saxl’s album The Blue of Distance out January on Western Vinyl. On “Wave III” we hear the surging drone of ambient tones played on acoustic strings crest, fall and lap with tidal movement. According to Western Vinyl, the recording of The Blue of Distance came about by “combining digitally-processed recordings of wind and water with analog synthesizers and chamber orchestra, The Blue of Distance begins as a meditation on the effect of technology on our relationship with land/nature/place but ultimately evolves to be more of a reflection on longing and memory.”  This relationship with a specific patch of the Adirondack mountains during the summer and a frozen island in lake superior in the dead of winter.
